On the weekend of January 14-16, 1994, a group of 250 or so Gloranthan devotees congregated at a hotel nestled in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland. They came from all across the United States, and the most fanatical traveled from even farther reaches of the globe.

RuneQuest-Con succeeded in its goal of being "a sophisticated event, for mature, sophisticated gamers. More than just a collection of tournaments; a place to come together and share quality gaming ideas. A forum to recognize the very best games and gaming worlds that the hobby has to offer."

This book is an attempt to distill to written form the fun that was had that weekend.

The Contents
One of the surprise successes was the enthusiasm brought to the Orlanthi Storytelling contest. Close to twenty bards had tales and legends to entertain their fellows. Seven of those folks have shared their stories here for your enjoyment.

Home of the Bold was an eighty-person Gloranthan freeform game, where friction between Lunar occupying forces and Sartarite malcontents led to armed rebellion. Twenty participants tell us about their experiences in the game.

We were able to record several of the hour-long seminars that took place at RuneQuest-Con. For those of you seeking Gloranthan lore, we've got 26 pages of it here. There's also an excellent discussion on live action roleplaying, which seems to be the next big thing in the RPG industry.

Finally, we present the rules to the Live Action Trollball game played that blustery Sunday morning.
